Today I wanted to share a few gift ideas for the book lover’s in your life.  I know a lot of you who will read this are also book lover’s so these are some fun things to add to your wishlists!

Bookish Candles

I do not have many bookish candles but I would love to collect more.  The one candle that I do have is from Frostbeard Studio. I have the scent Bookstore and it is amazing… it smells actually like a bookstore/coffee shop.

Here are a few candles that are on my wishlist:

Hogwarts Sorting Hat|Box Set of Harry Potter Houses from Wick and Fable

TBR Candle from NovellyYours (I would love any of their candles!)

Amazonian Princess| Wonder Woman Candle from GeekyGirlScents


I love getting ornaments as Christmas presents because I think of that person every year when I hang the ornament.  I have found so many adorable and beautiful bookish ornaments this year!

I bought this ornament at Chapters but it seems it is no longer on the website unfortunately! Something similar to this would be a perfect gift for a book lover! I found a few here and here.

I think book prints make for a great gift! They are nice way of displaying your passion of reading through your decor!

  1. I never thought about bookish ornaments but I suppose why not. Is it just me though or does the Alice one look a bit evil?

    My bookish mug collection is also starting to get a bit out of hand but have to admit I would still be happy to get more 😉

  2. This was such a cool post! I’m a mug lover so I wouldn’t mind to have more! Also the candles have been quite popular lately, so that’d be a great gift!

  3. my wallet is crying at all the amazing things in this post. those alice ornaments…….the mugs…….oh man. this is great!!!
